Happy birthday to Charles Brockden Brown (17 January, 1771 – 22 February, 1810) and Anne Brontë (17 January, 1820 – 28 May, 1849)!

"Yet I will persist to the end. My narrative may be invaded by inaccuracy and confusion; but if I live no longer, I will, at least, live to complete it. What but ambiguities, abruptnesses, and dark transitions, can be expected from the historian who is, at the same time, the sufferer of these disasters?"
- Charles Brockden Brown, Wieland: or, The Transformation: An American Tale (1789)

Ormond, or The Secret Witness The Tenant of Wildfell Hall

“Are you hero enough to unite yourself to one whom you know to be suspected and despised by all around you, and identify your interests and your honor with hers?”
- Anne Brontë, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall (1848)

Anne Bronté's book is still on my TBR pile, but Happy Birthday, anyway, Anne! *g*

I find her and her sisters so interesting, and I'm really looking forward to To Walk Invisible when it finally is shown here in March!

YES! I can't wait for To Walk Invisible! Thanks for reminding me how soon we'll be seeing it. High expectations here.

Not really related to your post, but I was curious to learn if you intend to appear at RavenCon again. Perhaps you could do a panel on the Lovecraftian elements that appear in both version of Doctor Who, and maybe call it Call of Cthul-Who.

Ha! I love the panel idea! I don't think RavenCon is in the cards for me this year, unfortunately, but I do hope to be there again sooner rather than later! Did you hear that Capaldi is leaving Who? Let the speculation on the new Doctor begin!
